ABOUT THE BOOK
In 1942, a bewildered six-year-old Joan Crabb and her siblings find themselves wards of the Loyal True Blue and Orange Orphanage in Richmond Hill, Ontario. For seven challenging years, they support one another through the strong bonds of familial love, until at the age of thirteen, Joan and the other Crabb children are taken in by Bill and Grace, a warm and welcoming farm couple, who model and teach the unconditional love of parents. These invaluable life lessons are tested, however, when Joan and her siblings are blindsided, plucked away from Bill and Grace, and taken to Nova Scotia, into the custody of the biological father they have never known.
